We have just moved to a Regus serviced office and they have now told us that we "must" pay our monthly rent & fees by direct debit. If we insist on not paying by direct debit they will levy a 5% charge on all fees. There is nothing in the contract we signed that mentions direct debits, it just says that fees must be paid promptly. does anyone else here operate from a Regus office or have experience of this? Must I sign a direct debit mandate for this? I can't find this requirement written down anywhere yet verbally they have told me it is a term and condition of Regus. I would rather pay by standing order because I don't want anyone taking money out of my bank account. In my last offices we paid by standing order for 17 years and never once missed a payment. Regus have said they are not prepared to accept a standing order.
